Sir Isaac Newton predicted the world's end...

According to Sir Isaac Newton's paper's he predicted the world would end in 2060. Any thoughts on this? Could he have been correct?

I don't think he would be correct. I think the population may dramatically reduce by then with all the problems our world is facing, but people will adapt and survive.

I read he predicted it in 1942.... quite odd seeing as the first nuclear chain reaction was created on that year...

Only God knows when the world is going to end. All that we know is that in the Bible it states that towards the end of the world, natural disasters will happen more often.

There won't be an 'end of the world' as such, unless our planet it obliterated by a large comet, or consumed by a prematurely expending sun humanity will endure.

Look at it this way. If their was a nuclear war at least a million people worldwide would still exist, the land could be completely ruined but humanity will live on. Anyway within the next 150 years it is likely that technology will be advanced enough to establish colonies in orbit of earth or on another nearby planet. By that point humananity shall live on whatever happens.

The worlds most known Bible interpreters have said that within the next 20 years the book of revelation will be fulfilled-and it will be the end of the world. I've studied the Bible 8 or 9 times and I think they mite be right :(

Anyone could have predicted the end of the world, but people think that just because some of the more well known figures in history predicted it that it will happen now.
The end of the world will not be biblical I am very certain of that.
If we were all going to be killed for being sinners than we would all be dead already because morally we are very messed up as a whole.
Im thinking if it does go down it will be a random comet or asteroid, or the sun expanding and devouring us, or us blowing ourselves up (atleast to some degree).
No set date though.

The thing is the end of the world isn't necesserily the end of humanity, nor the end of the earth.

I think that the end of the world may come sooner than Newton Predicted. I base this belief on the fact that final book of the Bible, Revelation, seems to scream at us today as being pretty damn accurate. There is just so many parallels that I can't just ignore it.

1. Israel is back, and being intensely persecuted by surrounding nations. Could the Magog war against Israel be a reference to the Islamic terrorism threat that the Palestinians Pose... or could Gog be a certain Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (of Iran), who vowed to 'wipe Israel off the map'.

2. Pestilence: HIV, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Sars, Cancers, MRSA and other superbugs and incurable diseases.

3. Wars and rumors of wars: The whole war on terror has been subjected to so much media spin that I doubt that anyone is privy to the whole truth.

4. Hard heartedness: Violent crimes are on the rise, people rarely know their neighbours names let alone befriend them, all to many people think 'not my problem' and don't do enough to help solve problems

More need to be said?

The world is what you make it. None of those things have been created by anything else than humanity and none of those things will be destroyed by anything else than humanity. When, where and how isn't important.

HelenofBorg: The world today is not very different to how it has been for the past 100000 years. We have, and will always have illnesses (pandemies comes about two times every century), we have and will always have wars, we have and will always have crimes, and we have and always will have natural disasters like hurricanes, tsunamies and earth cuaqes. Today is very little different than today 2000 years ago, or around the time when The Revelation was written. People ever since (and probably before with earlier predictions of doom) has looked around and seen all these terrible things that happens and predicted doomsday. It hasnt happend yet, and it probably wont happen for quite some time. And even if humanity dies the earth and our planet will live on, and as long as the planet can carry life, life will bloom. I agree with Weaxzezz, the world is what you make of it. There is both good and bad in the world and in every human being. If you choose to focus only on the bad the world will seem only to be bad.

Hello Guys,

He's not only famous for his three universal laws of motion that were not to be improved upon for more than two hundred years. He also predicted the end of the world in a 1704 letter that went on show in Jerusalem on
AdsSpy: 50 sites by this AdSense ID

Sunday.

In this letter, he claims that the world would end 1,260 years after the foundation of the Holy Roman Empire in Western Europe in 800 AD. This is the first time the letter has been put on public show since 1969, said the representatives of the Jerusalem's Hebrew University, where the letter is part of an exhibition entitled "Newton's Secrets."

Newton based its predictions on the Bible, specifically on verses in the Book of Daniel and they are part of an array of papers of the British scientist bequeathed to the institution by a wealthy collector of scientific manuscripts.

Actually Newton was not a religious fanatic. On the contrary, he secured a royal exemption from the ordination in the Church of England that was normally expected of academics of his day so he would not have to follow its teachings.

He seemed to have taken a particular interest in superstitions of his time, which have long since been taken lightly by modern science. Newton's study of the Bible and of the early Church Fathers was among his greatest passions. He devoted more time to the study of the Scriptures, the Fathers, and to Alchemy than to science, and said, "I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily."

Thanks a lot, God Bless
